The role of the mother can be considered by many as a profession. A profession that certainly has daily responsibilities and obligations, a profession that does not have strict working hours and performs without a doubt a commendable task: that of a child’s proper upbringing. But in a house with all the costs and burdens of a family, unfortunately, this is not enough. In addition to the already burdened role they have, so many mothers are called to contribute to the total family income in order for the normal living of the whole family.
Referring specifically to new mothers, we usually speak of educated women who have specialized knowledge and certifications, which they can use to practice various lucrative professions – and most importantly – from the safety of their home. So what are those occupations that are ideal for all those new mothers who work from home?
Create online courses
Do you have any specialized knowledge, or are you very good at something specific? Then making online courses and selling them online is definitely a smart way to increase your income. You will need a small studio, which you can simply build in the corner of your home (by placing a desk with a chair against a wall background or by simply standing in front of a monochrome background), a camera and basic video knowledge editing.
Take a mini-course offering basic knowledge (such as English, Painting, Web Design, Creativity, Home Cleaning Tips, Cooking Recipes) and upload your lessons to online platforms like your Udemy or other platforms. The more specialized the knowledge you offer and the more attractive the content is to the users, the more online students you will attract and, therefore, the more revenue you will secure.
Become a freelancer
Money from the internet, from the comfort of their own home, is also secured by freelancers as one of top online opportunities. You can become one of them by offering services through platforms such as Upwork, Fiverr or 99Designs. All you have to do is create a professional profile, advertise your qualifications and of course, start offering services.
You can deal with services such as web design, accounting, data entry, advertising, translations, marketing, graphic design, social media, photo editing, text correction and proofreading, etc. Potentially, as a freelancer, you can offer all kinds of services as long as there is interest in them. The competition, however, is great, and for this, you have to design your professional profile very carefully, create an online portfolio with samples of your work, and beat your competitors with attractive prices and packages of offers.
Become a Youtuber
YouTube is the most popular means of watching online video and a great source of revenue for thousands of users worldwide. Create a YouTube channel and start uploading videos. You can create small vlogs (videos with personal stories and things that concern you), or funny videos, small sketches or even videos from trips and excursions.
Advertise your channel and try to gather as many subscribers as possible to build a dedicated audience. At the same time, start running ads so that you earn money every time someone watches your videos. You can start collaborating with other YouTubers and support each other to increase your channel’s followers and revenue. Of course, your videos must be professional to attract more and more viewers.
So if you decide to create your own videos on YouTube, you need to pay close attention to your videos’ overall quality. Elements such as proper editing, using the right equipment or voice-overs are important for the end result you will see. Especially the voice-overs in your videos are very important in giving this narrative style that you may be looking for. These audio parts that you can place in your videos can be created either by yourself or by a company that provides voice acting services. In particular, Voquent company can offer you fantastic voice acting services, which can cover every possible video need, always at the best market prices.
